Tom Hiddleston slated for Golden Globes rant – plus full winners’ list

The Golden Globes took place night, with musical La La Land the big winner on the evening, claiming no fewer than seven awards. You can see the full winners’ list below.

Last night’s plush ceremony was also notable for British actor Tom Hiddleston’s badly-received acceptance speech – more about that later.

Held at the The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, The 74th Annual Golden Globes honoured the great and the good of film and television.

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling won best performances for both actor and actress for their roles in La La Land, the much-praised musical comedy about life in the jazz age, with the movie going on to claim a further five gongs including Best Motion Picture for a Musical or Comedy.

Other big winners on the night included Moonlight, which scooped the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture for Drama, and The Crown, which won Best Television Series for Drama.

Among the big stories of the night was Hiddleston’s thank you speech after winning his first Golden Globe for Best Actor, in The Night Manager.

Hiddleston was panned on social media after launching into a tale about visiting South Sudan.

The 36-year-old, who has been heavily tipped to become the next James Bond, appeared to shock the audience with his self-serving story about the civil-war-torn country.

“A quick story, I know it’s been a long night,” he began. ‘I recently went to South Sudan, which is the youngest country in the world – in east Africa, with the United Nations Children’s Fund.

“I do a little bit of work with them, try to spread the word as best I can. It’s a terrible situation happening for children.

“The Night Manager is about arms dealing and there are far too many arms going in to South Sudan.'”

He continued: “There’s a curfew at 6pm every night because humanitarian aid workers have to be inside so that it’s safe – by 6. One night we were having a bite to eat at the canteen where we were staying. And a group of young men and women tottered over to the table and were all having what they call a ‘dirty beer’ in humanitarian language.

“They were a group of Médecins Sans Frontières doctors and nurses and they wanted to say hello because during the shelling the previous month they had binge watched the Night Manager.

“The idea that I could provide – or that we could provide some relief and entertainment for the people that work for UNICEF and Médecins Sans Frontières and the World Food Programme who are fixing the world in the places where it is broken made me immensely proud. So I dedicate this to those out there who are doing their best.”

He was quickly mocked on Twitter, as viewers noticed the uncomfortable reactions of several A-listers including Christian Slater and Naomi Harris, as the camera zoomed in on them during his two-minute rant on stage.
